  1. Recovering Deleted Files

    Hello. I'm looking for a piece of software that would allow me to
    recover files that have been recently deleted from my hard drive in
    Windows XP. When I say deleted, I mean from the recycle bin as well.

    Kind Regards,

    Matthew Boulton

    google ntfsundelete.exe.
    It works on NTFS of course. It worked good for me.

    I recently used GetDataBack for NTFS from Runtime Software on a 500GB
    drive. Windows gave me the option of deleting the partition and starting
    again but the app got all the data off with no failures at all.

    If the deleted files have been overwritten you may have problems getting
    the full file(s) back but it's worth a go.

    Its not even possible to do that reliably if the drive is formatted HPFS.

    I have used (google) pc inspector file recovery
    free, and it worked(another duplicate file wiper wiped
    a bit to well....)

    for files that have just been deleted 'pc inspector file recovery'
    works fine but if the drive is going bad or you've lost the FAT table or
    similar
    then getdataback is needed and it about 60 I think

    Recovering deleted files is pretty reliable... so long as
    it's not on a partition that's been written to in the
    interim. Another good reason not to put anything important
    on a Windows OS resident partition.

    Wrong.

    I dont do that with the PVR files that do get deleted ocassionally in error and cant be recovered reliably.

    Take the key off the ole keyboard?

    Care to explain why you have trouble with that in
    particular? Undeleting a file that hasn't been overwritten
    is pretty routine.

    No thanks, I have to delete the files to make room for new recordings.

    Wrong, as always, when its on an NTFS formatted partition.

    I've used EasyRecovery Pro in the past to recover files deleted off pen
    drives. I've also used it to check how secure Eraser is in wiping a company
    hard disk before it was given away - Eraser did a very good job :-) Even the
    raw recovery mode in ERP couldn't get anything back. I've also run it, out
    of interest, on my PC's project hard disk and I was amazed what it managed
    to bring back from the mists of time.

    But make sure you a) freeze the hard disk NOW and b) don't install on the
    same partition as you are trying to recover from.

    If you have lost a serious amount of data, go out and buy another hard disk,
    install vanilla Windows XP and ERP on there, and then try to recover the
    damaged hard disk.

    Rob.

    One of the best solution in the market is Easy File Undelete:

    http://www.munsoft.com/EasyFileUndelete/

    It uses unique modern algorithms to recover files that other software
    either recovers incorrectly or is unable to detect.

    Clearly Rod is talking total bollocks. Yet again.
